Smacker video is a video file format (with the .SMK file extension) developed by RAD Game Tools, and primarily used for full-motion video in video games. Smacker video supports 256 colors, and includes transparency support. While being a palette-based format, which is inherently limited to having not more than 256 colors in each frame, Smacker videos may still contain more colors in total due to "palette rotation" whereby the next frame may have a different palette. This usually results in SMK files that look better if the source video has more than 256 colors.
This is a file format of general use (not LBA-exclusive). See Wikipedia article.
